Back in 2010, while we were in Grand Cayman, Arielle asked me if I would buy her the hat she modeled at a souvenir shop. I said no with the usual answer “maybe next time” Well this happened to be the next time.

Mr. Sancho’s all-inclusive was well worth the $50 per person. We tried just about everything they had on the cocktail menu and even some that weren’t along with a few beers. We had breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack. I calculated that just the food alone exceeded the entrance fee.

 

Upon our return to the port we browsed around the shops for a while.

You must go through the Dufry duty free shop when exiting and returning to the pier.

As soon as we got back on the ship we all took a nap. We skipped the dining room and had a light meal on the Lido deck.

The only thing Tracy and I did for evening entertainment was to go see the comedian Happy Cole in the Victoria Lounge. We had seen him on a previous cruise and really liked him.

we've always gone to nachi cocom, but mr. Sanchos looks better.

 

So for $50pp, it's open bar and order off the menu whenever you want?

 

 

 

yes

Omg...good thing you work out. Can't imagine the upper body strength needed to pull yourself out of the water on those toys. Looks like fun though.

 

Great review...going on the Liberty in 6 months but Eastern route. :D

 

 

 

Thanks, unless your a kid it's a workout to get up these things. :eek:

Ok, you've convinced me to do Mr. Sanchos when we go in March! Do you feel it was worth the $50pp for all you ate and drank?

 

Sent from my SPH-D710 using Forums mobile app

 

 

Absolutely. All 4 of us did exceed $50 in what we received. I calculated my bill alone would have been over $135 and that's not counting the use of the lounge bed, the snorkeling equipment, etc.

How deep is the water where you were playing in Cozmuel? Gad I can't believe hardly anyone was there.

 

 

 

For the structures closer the shore the water was about waist deep but the ones further out, the water was above our heads.

I always enjoy your reviews and this one has started out great! I love Mr. Sanchos--we've been 3 times and have never been disappointed. I'm looking forward to reading about the rest of your family's adventures. Thanks!

 

 

 

Thanks Beachlover1964, glad you like it. Mike

Great review thank-you !!! you said you go to the steak house on the first night all the time is there a reason? or just your preference ?

 

A couple of reasons, the free bottle of wine and the fact that the steakhouse is not busy on the first night.

Been there three times, twice did the AI once did not. I miss my Tamerin (sp?) margaritas. Would you believe the price for the AI has not increased in 5 years. (is the AI still $25 for children under 16?)

 

Your first pictures had me worried, I did not see the water toys at first and thought they didn't have them anymore. FYI - my 9 year old conquered the Ice burg.

 

 

 

13-17 years $40

4-12 years $30

under 4 years free

MickeyA53 - Your right sorry I did mean Breeze not Dream. Have done the Dream and we weren't fans of it. WOW Mr. Sanchos has changed since we were there last, they didn't have a pool and the water toys were old and slimy. We paid to use them but I didn't have the upper body strength to pull myself up so it was a waste for me but my husband did play on them. I also noticed they seem to have a lot more water toys there now. We are heading to Cozumel in January but gonna try out the Beach Club. Really looking forward to your Breeze review. Oh and your pictures are beautiful, were you using a water camera for the pictures on the water toys?

 

 

Yes I was using my Nikon water camera.

We booked the first formal night but that's a good idea about the first night. Can't wait for your Breeze review:)

There was a party boat that, for some reason, seemed not to want to get out of the way on our recent Breeze cruise. The captain was heading towards to basin to make the turn and this boat just stayed in the way. The captain had to blow the horn a couple of time and they would only move a short distance. The coast guard eventually had to have a chat with them too. I don't understand why anyone would want to be in the way of a huge ship like that. Anyway, enjoyng your review.

Your review is excellent!!...I am hoping you will get to the Breeze review before we leave on the 18th. We are sailing the Breeze on Oct. 20th. Last minute getaway. Were the inflatables included at Mr. Sanchos as part of what you paid?

Some great action shots Mike, think I'll put that place on my list for next time out that way.

 

 

Thanks oakleys. If we return to Cozumel we will definitely return to Mr. Sanchos. $50 per person is cheaper than most other all-inclusive places and I also like the fact that you can order from the menu instead of a buffet. Mike

Today’s excursion was booked through Carnival about eight months ago. This was the excursion that Tracy insisted upon and was looking forward to the most. Unfortunately Mitchel declined to participate. It’s pricy at $169.99 per person but worth it since none of us had ever tried zip lining, repelling or cave tubing with the exception of Arielle having done zip lining in Canada. The excursion also included a delicious Belizean lunch.

 

I started off the morning with my usual stroll around the ship. I love it when it’s deserted, I wish Tracy felt the same but alas she likes to sleep in and it’s her vacation after all.

The three of us went for breakfast.

Then it was time to meet in the Venetian Lounge to catch your designated tender. Belize is a tender port which means the ships does not dock at a pier. You’re brought to the pier by high speed boats.

The ship looks so peaceful in the early hours. What time did you stroll out there?

The ships tendered quite a distance from Belize City and even at high speed it takes about 20 minutes to reach the pier.
